AFAIK, Ralph Lauren has been doing the Americana thing for a long time, before it really took off here. I wouldn't be prepared to say that he took ideas from the Japanese Americana guys. Actually, I think that the RRL was his baby for a long time, became defunct for a while, and is now back on track again. I used to drop by the old store on 3rd Street in LA from time to time. Lots of interesting vintage pieces, and pricey, iirc. Godmother (of 5EP and on this site) was a designer for the old RRL line.
